Dairy Margin Program

USDA Opens 2022 Enrollment for Dairy Margin Coverage Program; Ends Feb. 18, 2022

Producers who wish to enroll for 2022 DMC coverage can sign up with their local Farm Service Agency (FSA) office beginning Monday, Dec. 13, 2021–Friday, Feb. 18, 2022.

The deadline to enroll in DMC for 2022 is Feb. 18, 2022.

Regarding the supplemental DMC payment, which will represent 75% of the difference between an operation’s actual 2019 production and their DMC production history, producers will be required to provide their local FSA office with proof of their 2019 milk production. DFA will be sending members letters with production data soon. Remember that producers are eligible for this payment if their DMC production history is less than 5 million pounds. This supplemental payment is retroactive to January 2021 and will be in effect for 2022 and 2023.

Lastly, USDA announced an update to the feed cost calculation for DMC. USDA will now use high-quality alfalfa hay, which will result in increased payments. This program is retroactive to January 2020 and USDA is expected to make these payments to producers before the end of the year.

See the full USDA announcement here and expect more information about these programs next week, once the rules have been published.

Information regarding DMC can be found here.
